P229 magazine repair?!

Hi, I recently acquired a P229 in .40 S&W. I really enjoy the pistol, having lots of safe fun.
After 3 trips to the range/hills, I decided to try to clean the magazines instead of just the pistol. I opened one up, following the instructions in the manual, it was pretty simple.
Cleaned it, and when I tried to put it back together, the magazine follower does not get pushed all the way up the magazine tube by spring anymore.




I put my other mag next to the broken one for easy comparison, I am sure you all know what they are supposed to look like without it.

I dont want to take apart my other mag yet until I get another new one, or fix my busted one. I would hate to bust my one good one and be without a mag. Does anyone have a good video, pdf, some advice?

I will be taking apart the magazine again to try and fiddle with it, hopefully I dont damage it more. I am pretty sure the spring might be bent, I can feel it getting caught before it reaches the top of the tube.
Thanks, and happy holidays!

Tear down the mag again and inspect everything first then back together. See if maybe you just rushed the first tim. Some mag springs are angled. It could be in backwards.
